"A great safe place to visit"
Singapore is a great safe place to visit. There is no need for a rental car in Singapore. Walking is a good way to explore the city with all major attractions accessible by tour bus or the available top notch public transportation. The city is only 60 miles from the equator giving the Singapore a consistent tropical climate. No matter when you choose to visit, warm weather is always the setting. North of the city, are two nature preserves, Bukit Timah and the Central Catchment Area, along with the Singapore Zoological Gardens. In addition there are over fifty islands that can easily be reached. Day trips are really popular to Sentosa, the island amusement arcade which links to Singapore by cable car and causeway. Theatre, museums, nightlife and beachside restaurants make Singapore a great tropical getaway for business, or pleasure.
